Wabash College

Crawfordsville, INwww.wabash.edu
Founded in 1832, Wabash College remains one of a handful of all-male liberal arts colleges in the U.S. Its student body is small, with just under 900 people, and class sizes are as well, with three-fourths of them having fewer than 20 students. The workload can be tough, but the student-faculty ratio is relatively low. Wabash offers about 40 majors and also has dual-degree arrangements for engineering with Columbia, Purdue, and Washington University in St. Louis. Wabash students can take their pick of about 70 organizations -- try out the Coffee Roasting & Brewing Club, write for the weekly newspaper The Bachelor, or play on a variety of sports teams like the Ultimate Frisbee Club. Greek life is popular among the men at Wabash; more than half the student body are members of one of the 10 national fraternities on campus. The average annual cost is about even with the national median, and 99% of attendees get student aid. In everything, though, students have to abide by what's called the gentleman's rule: "The student is expected to conduct himself at all times, both on and off campus, as a gentleman and a responsible citizen."
